You’ve Got To Be Kidding Us, LAT/ Booth Moore Gives Advice to Victoria Beckham

vbeck.jpg

While everyone else huffs and puffs about the LAT’s plan to sell front-page ad space (Hello? Who didn’t see that coming?), we’re focusing our flabbergasted huff-puffery at the paper’s increasingly Cosmo-esque fashion pages.

Booth Moore’s piece about Victoria Beckham includes this bit of “Girl to Girl” advice:

However you’re built, be mindful of the rule that if you get your boobs out, put your legs away and vice versa. I guarantee you will look better and feel a lot more confident and comfortable.

and

The most important thing to remember if you’re wearing a dress that won’t let you wear a bra, such as one with a low back or, in particular, a deep-plunge front, is to make sure you have lots of toupee tape to keep everything in place. Don’t bother with [nipple tape] … go to a proper wig shop and get the real stuff as it’s much tougher and nothing will go anywhere when you’ve got that on. Word of warning though: be careful when you take it off that you don’t rip a nipple off too!

What’s wonderful, though, is that since the LAT hasn’t been totally swallowed up by vapidness, what appears right alongside this piece online is a headline reading, “Al Qaeda has renewed ability to attack U.S., report says.”

Ah, perspective. That and some well-placed toupee tape will take a girl far.

Booth Moore Blogs on Fashion in LA Times

Is the LA Times deliberately trying to hide things from readers? Booth Moore’s got a fashion blog, The World is My Runway, not that anyone made much of a fuss over it. No comments, either. Cathy Horyn’s blog in the New York Times, On the Runway, looks great on the screen, and is easy to read. (Fashionistas are too vain to wear glasses.) And she’s got comments.

Still, Moore’s blog is a step in the right direction, and in cute shoes, too. Stepping into the big time is Scott Schuman, aka The Sartorialist, who’s now snapping his heart out for Style.com. Blogging can make dreams come true.
